5V E1/T1/J1 Line Interface

Please check latest availability status for a specific part variant.


The DS2148 is a complete selectable E1 or T1 Line Interface Unit (LIU) for short- and long-haul applications. Throughout the data sheet, J1 is represented wherever T1 exists. Receive sensitivity adjusts automatically to the incoming signal and can be programmed for 0dB to 12dB or 0dB to 43dB for E1 applications and 0dB to 30dB or 0dB to 36dB for T1 applications. The device can generate the necessary G.703 E1 waveshapes in 75Ω or 120Ω applications and DSX-1 line build outs or CSU line build outs of 0dB, -7.5dB, -15dB, and -22.5dB for T1 applications. The crystal-less onboard jitter attenuator requires only a 2.048MHz MCLK for both E1 and T1 applications (with the option of using a 1.544MHz MCLK in T1 applications). The jitter attenuator FIFO is selectable to either 32 bits or 128 bits in depth and can be placed in either the transmit or receive data paths. An X 2.048MHz output clock synthesized to RCLK is available for use as a backplane system clock (where n = 1, 2, 4, or 8). The DS2148 has diagnostic capabilities such as loopbacks and PRBS pattern generation/detection. 16-bit loop-up and loop-down codes can be generated and detected. The device can be controlled via an 8-bit parallel muxed or nonmuxed port, serial port or used in hardware mode. The device fully meets all of the latest E1 and T1 specifications including ANSI T1.403-1999, ANSI T1.408, AT&T TR 62411, ITU G.703, G.704, G.706, G.736, G.775, G.823, I.431, O.151, O.161, ETSI ETS 300 166, JTG.703, JTI.431, JJ-20.1, TBR12, TBR13, and CTR4.
